HUIXTLA, Mexico (AP) — Thousands of Central American migrants awoke Tuesday in a makeshift encampment in a rain-soaked town square in far-southern Mexico, some weary, foot-sore and coughing, still distant from their goal of reaching the U.S. border.

The caravan, estimated to include more than 7,000 people, had advanced about 45 miles (75 kilometers) since crossing the border from Guatemala, and still faced more than 1,000 miles, and likely much further, to the end of the journey.

The article goes on to state the following:

But as the sun rose, a chorus of coughs arose from the shapeless forms wrapped in blankets and bits of plastic sheeting. Burned by the relentless heat and the night’s chill, eating badly and sleeping rough, many appeared to be developing respiratory symptoms.

LA Times reporter Kate Linthicum has posted many updates on the caravan, and said on Sunday that the caravan is more than two miles long.

Hundreds of Mexican police went from trying to block the road to simply providing “escort service,” according to Linthicum’s tweets.  She wrote, “Police helicopter has been circling #caravanamigrantes all day. Several surveillance trucks. Hundreds of officers. Federal police commissioner says they’re there to give “safe and orderly passage” to shelters in Tapachula.”

The Associated Press also reported:

Another hazard — trucks crowded with hitch-hiking migrants — claimed one victim Monday when a man fell from the back of a truck and died.

The marchers set up a simple memorial to the man overnight, setting out a dozen small candles arranged in the shape of a cross that were kept lit through the darkness.

An activist aiding the marchers, Irineo Mujica of the Pueblo Sin Fronterass group, said they would pause and rest on Tuesday in honor of the man who died.

    Who gives a Rat’s Ass! Their choice, their decision their problem!!!! I have become very hardened about their disrespect, unlawful and their blatant invasions of our Country. If they are so bad off, they can go home!!!!

      I agree with you! I am so tired of this! They need to go back home!

    I do not feel sorry for those that are sick, it was only a matter of time. Maybe they will send all those in the caravan back to their own homes after they rest up! The United States can not take any more illegal immigrants!

    Several things going on here. They are at fault (should) knowing the consequences of a journey, such as this, to their family/children. They will enter U.S. w/illness/injuries/near death ready for us to pay. If this is what Soros wants, let him pay for their well being, I don’t want to!

    Don’t let these disease ridden people into America. We have plenty here to get rid of and send back where they came from. They want to disrespect our flag and country then demand we take them in so they get all the freebeeies . NO WAY JOSE! GO BACK AND DEMAND YOUR RIGHTS FROM YOUR OWN COUNTRY. Since you probably don’t speak english you don’t undetstand everything being said but i bet they sure told you a bunch of lies about you would get into the US. They better tell you the truth. Its not a happening thing. GO HOME AND TAKE YOUR KIDS AND OTHER RELATIVES WITH YOU AND DONT LEAVE CHILDREN ON THE SIDE OF THE ROAD. THATS A CRIMINAL ACT.. GO HOME! GO HOME! EVERY LAST ONE OF YOU!

    These illegal aliens have no rights to demand entry to the U.S. They need to blow there way back to there shit hole countries. None of them look deprived nor starving. We are not the free meal ticket for the world. Apply the correct lawful way or dont come at all!

    Turn around and go home. You have no right to come here. Apply for asylum and enter the right way. Until then, go back where you came from!
